Hi, I work for the local office of a multinational. Last week a fellow employee filed allegations of sexual harassment against me. We've been friends for a while and went out with a group of people last week, stayed out late, and then I went home by myself. Although I thought the interest was mutual, the flirting that happened was obviously not.
I was on the fast track, now I'm scrambling to keep my job. My question is, should I leave the firm and start over? I know what I did was galactically stupid but I can't imagine living under a glass ceiling because of this blight on my record.
Would appreciate any advice.
